Trying to install VSTO. Not going well...

    Question

  • I'm trying to install VSTO SE on an XP Pro SP2 machine with MS Visual C# 2008 Express, MS Visual ASP.NET 2008 Express, and Office 2007 Professional installed.

    After running the setup.exe, I'm greeted with a Required Prerequisites error, listing both:

     

    ·                     Visual Studio 2005 Block

    ·                     Visual Studio 2005 Locale Block

     

    Can I not install VSTO with Express editions of VS?

    I’m now getting a message, in big, bold letters, that reads as follows:

    Microsoft Visual Studio

    Required: Visual Studio 2005 product

    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for the 2007 Microsoft Office System cannot be installed until one of the following products is installed first:

    ·                     Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Suite Edition

    ·                     Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Architect Edition

    ·                     Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Developer Edition

    ·                     Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Test Edition

    ·                     Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition

    ·                     Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for the Microsoft Office System

     

    Please install one of these products, and then run Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Tools for the 2007 Microsoft Office System setup again.

     

    Any ideas on how to make this work?

    Thanks!
